No little favciable comment is
being heard in Honolulu regarding
he speedy action o t sheriff
William Rice and Circuit Judge
Lyle A. Dickey of Kauai in secur
ing and presenting to Attorney
general Wade Warren Thayei the
facts concerning a tale of woe wich
.a Portuguese girl named Glory
Paris, whose parents reside on the
Garden Island, told the latter the
other day. Claiming that she waS
but 19 years old, that she' had four
children to support, and that the
husband has been wrongfully cast
into jail. Glory Paris' story was
taken by the attorney - general to
have some meaning to it.
The attorney-general communi
cated with the Kauai officials, who
immediately visited the girl's
parents, otily to learn that Glory
Paris' had no children and that
her story was otherwise a gigantic
traiue-up. This evidence was
inniediately forwarded attorney
general and the matter straightened
out just i n time to prevent a
number of charitable people of the
metropolis coming to the aid of one
whom they believed to be a des
titute mother with four children.
The campaign which Dr. John
W. Wadman, recently appointed
superintendent of the Anti-Saloon
League with headquarters at Hono
lulu, is now carrying on through
out Kauai is the forerunner of a
great movement which is to per
meate every section of Iliwaii.
Doctor Wadman is out in earnest
to fight the saloon and has the
staunch support of Jeff McCurn,
United States district attorney, in
h i s undertaking. Mr. McCarn
has stirred the people of Honolulu
with the many forceful, straight-to-the-point
addresses on the: tem

"The Store for Good Clothes"
Manager Rohrig, of theLihue
Store, bought the handsome truck
brought to Kauai a couple of weeks
ago by Mr. Humphreys, of the
Von Hamm-Young Company. Its
number is 142. as is also a depart
ment of the Lihue Store-and there
by hangs a tale:
Mr. Rohrig was telling Mr. E.
H. W. Broadbent about his pur
chase. It so happens that the hit
ter's auto number is 142.
"Yes," said the mmager of
Grove Farm; "and I suppose you
want my auto number, too, to cor
respond with your telephone num
Mr. Rohrig admitted that h e
would like to have it, and Mr
Broadbent inquired how much he
would give for it. "A box of good
cigars," replied the merchant.
"It's a go" the sugar man.
And that is how the fine, new
truck gets 142 as its number, while
Mr. Broadbent will have to secure
j another number for his flier.
Lights Wrongly Placed.
Editor Gardkn Island:
There is a law which states in

darkness shall carry a burning lamp.
It does not specifically state
that the light shall be placed in
such a position as to be seen by
others using the same highway.
Common sense interpretation of
this law, however, would indica
